‘Who here is angry?’: Jess Hill delivers rousing speech

Just before the attorney general gave his press conference a fortnight ago, I received a message warning that the media was about to be be backgrounded on Kate’s mental health.

This a is tactic called DARVO >

Deny, Attack and Reverse Victim and Offender.

It works like this:

The alleged perpetrator – and their supporters – denies the allegation, they attack the victim’s credibility, and then reverse the role of victim and offender so that it looks like the alleged perpetrator is the real victim.

The attack is intended to chill and terrify the victim and their supporters, and it often includes legal threats.

It took just THREE DAYS for this DARVO to be deployed against Kate.

But then something different happened. All of you were there. You saw what was happening. You called it out. You refused to let this narrative win.

The best response came from Leslie Cannold: There is something exquisitely screwed up about a society that abuses women in ways that cause trauma, and then uses the mental illness that trauma can provoke as evidence that they were never really abused in the first place.

Christian Porter deserves the presumption of innocence. But Kate’s allegations are credible, and they must be investigated. If he wants to hold public office, he must face an inquiry. There is no other option.
